I'm not saying we need to dismantle drag culture and reprimand queens guilty of saying hunty and fishy as vile misogynists of the patriarchal agenda (god forbid), but I definitely am saying that if you're going to impersonate women, then it's only right to respect women too.
Of course, women can technically have casual sex whenever they want. There's no law against it. But there is a deep-seated societal disapproval, which arguably, is just as powerful a deterrent.
In many societies women are considered as second class citizens and deprived of innumerable fundamental rights enjoyed by their male counterparts. Those who sincerely dislike this discrimination have espoused a struggle to obtain a parallel position which unfortunately, to date, confounds them to the more progressive states.
I'm a member of divisive Facebook Group Women Who Eat On Tubes. I joined because I didn't like what I saw. If you've read enough on the subject, or need to alphabetise your dried herbs, you're excused.
Has our generation lost the conviction too question what we stand for anymore ? Do we even believe in anything that has merit, and when I say merit, I mean a strong conviction, that robs us away from that awful saturated celebrity fat...
With the common mantra that "sex sells" and the idea that we have now reached a cultural peak of sexual openness and opportunity, a so-called 'post-feminist' outlook might argue that women today are now more sexually empowered to make a broader range of sexual choices. But whilst it's laudable that women are allowed to be sexual and openly enjoy sex; surely empowerment would be doing that on our own terms?
According to the Cambridge dictionary, feminism is 'the belief that women should be allowed the same rights, power, and opportunities as men and be treated in the same way.' So, what I can't understand is why women are so reluctant to call themselves a feminist.
For progress to be made, the BBC must fundamentally reassess the way it looks at female stand-ups. They are not a ratings tool but performers who can be just as hilarious as their male counterparts. Treating them as otherwise benefits neither the viewer nor the reputation of female comedians.
Not finding your jokes funny doesn't mean we're lacking in humour - it means your jokes are shit...
Like thousands of other Britons across the country, I begin my days by catching up on the latest news. And, on an increasingly frequent basis, it is often enough to make me feel like crawling back under the covers - or search for the latest "21 Cutest Animals Ever!" Buzzfeed...
On Saturday I marked International Women's Day by proudly marching in the name of ending male violence towards women and girls.
International Women's Day 2014 saw, for the fourth year, the Southbank Centre organise their spectacular and diverse WOW - Women of the World festival. And on show was the good, the bad and the ugly side of feminism today.
Hygiene, sanitation and water are critical issues for woman and girls,and must be included in the post-2015 gender debate. Without these crucial, but often ignored rights, women will continue to be discriminated against. Period.
There is no doubt that many people living in our current society have, at one point or another, been or felt harassment, whether it is sexually, verbally, physically or otherwise. While the law has changed in this respect, and offers more protection to the individual than several decades ago, mentalities and social attitudes have been slower at registering this change...
Feminism is a multigenerational effort, and it's easy to get caught up in talking about waves of feminism, and what kind of feminists we are, when we should be explaining the issues faced by women to younger generations.
Like most fat people, I have had a lot of mindless, hateful abuse spat at me. Strangers have either shouted "F**k you, fat b***h!" after me as I walked down the street or simply added a "You shouldn't eat that." if I eat anything but lettuce in public.
